Chinese Junkyard Uses "Autobots" to help business

Motto: "I'm your huckleberry."
Weapon: Dual Laser Cannon
Since the Transformers live action movie hit the production phase, people all over the globe have been finding ways to capitalize on the phenomonom that is Tranformerdom. We've seen piles of junk made into Optimus Prime. We've seen complete paper replicas of Bumblebee. Now we get a look at how one Chinese junkyard owner is trying to cash in on the Transformers.

...one Chinese entrepreneur from the Zhejiang province had a plan to promote his particular pile of junk as something special. He'd build full scale Autobot sculptures.

It's hard to say who this BMW is supposed to be, but it definately favors the G1 era. Check out the original article on this here.

Motto: "I come from the Net."
Weapon: Double-Barreled, Armor-Piercing Particle Beam Cann...
The head clearly looks inspired by movie Bumblebee.
It's probably not supposed to accurately reflect a particular character, but rather just look like a giant shape-shifting robot. Think of it as a chinese knockoff on crack.
